MLIve Michigan (04.19.13)

On April 25, the fifth annual International AIDS/HIV fundraiser Dining Out for Life will be held in the Kalamazoo, Mich. area. Thirty-five restaurants in Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Plainwell, Three Rivers, and Paw Paw will participate by donating at least 25 percent of their sales to Community AIDS Resource and Education Services (CARES), a local AIDS/HIV support organization that assists individuals in southwest Michigan. The CARES organization works to reduce the risk of HIV and improve life for those individuals already infected with the disease by offering services such as free HIV testing, education, and connections to local support groups. Director of Operations for CARES, Amy Bartell, hopes area residents will show support by visiting these community-supporting businesses. For a complete list of participating restaurants, please visit For more information, call Bartell at (269) 381.2437 ext. 12.
